The Prem 1 team were supported by our U14 athletes on their Christmas social having Pizza and Prem at Leeds Beckett. The opposition were top of the league Oldham at home super netball played by both teams resulting in a loss for Leeds 34-69.
Away in Hull the Northern girls had a stormer against Chevrons in a very physical game, resulting in a good win for LANC 68-30. This extends the winning streak of the Northern team and they remain top of the league.
In the U12 league U12B pulled off a tremendous win against YMCA 23-16 which placed them second in the West Yorkshire league behind our own U12A team. Great work from all U12s to achieve first and second place in this top U12 league.
Our U11s, U12C and U12D took to court on Sunday morning. U12C had a tough encounter with Huddersfield Giants losing 9-19 despite the loss there was some great teamwork and super netball from both sides. U12D played top of the league Yorkshire Terriers 1 starting slow but with grit and determination managed to get half points, 9-18 the final score.
The U12As were out at a friendly match against Hull Chevrons losing 15-18 but with lots of learning for the future. Thanks go to coach John Hipshon for putting in the extra time to support these girls.
